Can't Decide Between These 2...

Recommended Posts

Ok, I'm having trouble choosing between these two cameras: Samsung WB600 & Panasonic Lumix TZ7. I can get both cameras for around ?190 from Amazon.

WB600:

12MP

15x Optical

3.0" LCD

24mm Ultra Wide Angle Lens (Schneider)

HD 720p Video H.264

Manual Control

Released Jan 2010

TZ7:

10.1MP

12x Optical

3.0" LCD

25mm Ultra Wide Angle Lens (LEICA)

HD 720p Video AVCHD Lite

No Manual Control ???

Unknown release date ???

Ok the main differences are that the Samsung has more optical zoom, higher resolution and a slightly better lens. It was also released recently... Although I have heard good reviews of the TZ7's capabilitites... But on Amazon it shows that the TZ7 was released in 2006 which makes it very old... :blink:

Which one would you guys prefer?

I am not an expert on this by far, but after a certain point, let's say 8mp, isn't just over kill with 12mp?

Yea, but I also want HD video recording, and the lower resolution cameras don't offer this (couldn't really find any :unsure: ) Unless you had any in mind?

I gotta go with Samsung, I think they're great. Though I'm madly in love with my Sony Cybershot, the WB600 looks like the best of those two options.

Ok, is there any specific sony model within the price range of £190 and has similar features of the WB600?
